    Dear Parents, 

    Welcome to Primrose!  I am delighted to be your child’s kindergarten teacher this year.   Mrs. Sherri Donovan will be my teaching partner, as she has for the past 17 years.  We share the same, deep commitment to make learning both fun and meaningful.  While our time together will be from a distanceit is our goal to make your child’s experience as personal as possible.  Please know that your child’s social and emotional health will always be our priority.  Of course, this will be a journey we will walk together, so communication with you will be vitally important. 

    You should always feel free to reach me at jgardineer@somersschools.org  or at my home: (845)-628-1599.   

      Also, please look over the kindergarten supply list to decide which and how many items you should purchase for at-home learning.  You may already have many of these supplies and others that are not necessary, such as masks and the “classroom community” items.  Of course, it’s always fun to have brand new things for a new school year! 😊  In addition, for e-learning please purchase a ream of plain white copy paper, iPad compatible headphones, a stylus, 1 red folder, and a Bluetooth iPad mouse (if preferred to the touch screen).  This is optional, of course.

    I look forward to working with you and getting to know your child.  It’s going to be a wonderful year in a brand new way! 

    With warm regards,

    Welcome to Kindergarten! 


    My name is Mrs. Gardineer and I am going to be your teacher this year.  I am so excited about the fun learning we will do together!  I am already making plans for our first days. Every day I will look forward to seeing you. 

    Mrs. Donovan will be your teacher,too!  She is a lot of fun.  She will do special activities with you and help you learn new things. 

    If you’d like, you may bring a favorite stuffed animal with you to our first meeting.  Mrs. Donovan and I will also bring ours! 

    We will see you soon! 


    Your new friends, 

    Mrs. Gardineer & Mrs. Donovan
